The Tomorrow People are the next stage of human evolution. They can teleport, communicate by telepathy, heal with the power of thought and they are unable to kill or harm any living creature. Aided by a mysterious and ancient spacecraft buried in the sand of a Pacific island, the Tomorrow People use their powers to protect the world, while trying to keep their own existence a secret for fear of exploitation Written by

The first story has no on-screen title and, consequently, is known by several titles. These titles are "The Tomorrow People" (the only on-screen title), "The Origins", "The Origin Story" (forthcoming DVD title), "The Beginning" and "A New Beginning" (the novelization title). See more »
I know this makes me sound like an old granny (I'm only 23!) but they don't make shows like this for kids these days. I remember watching this when I was about eleven or twelve, and I was absorbed right from the start.
This revolved around four teenagers with the ability to teleport from place-to-place and use telepathy to communicate. Each storyline was engaging and portrayed a nice level of action, suspense and drama. There was no dumbing down as we saw the kids cope with government agents determined to enslave them to genetically engineered mosquitoes but there was enough humour in the series so it wasn't depressing.
I never watched the Seventies original which it was based on but I think it was a worthy successor and far better than that many children's shows these days, which only seem to focus on girls gushing over boys and infantile slapstick humour. I highly recommend the DVD box set to both fans and those who never had the chance to seen any of the episodes back in the Nineties.
